Saturday's Workout - Crumple It!


The Saturday's Workout theme this week is to use the Crumple It! technique. I have been using this technique for quite a few years now but I use cold press watercolour paper and food colouring. I dip the watercolour paper in water, drop food colouring on top, swirl in a little gold or silver ink then crumple plastic wrap on top and let dry. If you add salt (fine or coarse) you get a tie dye effect. It is very exciting and the results are gorgeous. I created a sheet for this card then cut out a piece for the girl's dress.
